Limited Capacity seats available

While California’s system of afterschool programs has been a model for the nation, that system is currently at risk. This workshop will introduce strategies to effectively advocate for afterschool programs. If you want to engage in advocacy but don’t know where to start, this workshop is for you! Participants will learn how to engage with the state legislature, how to rally support from their own city and how to activate their community. Strategies discussed will be universally applicable.

This session will help participants affirm young people's cultures and intersectional identities by identifying strategies to showcase young people's voices and stories which is critical to authentic advocacy.
